The idea of movement characterizes the whole exhibition. It starts from the title So Far So West by addressing a geographical uncertain leaning towards west. In explicitly using the three first words of the way of saying so far so good, it maps symbolically through the works a fragile Western credo. Different works are shown within the installation, unified all by an idea of physical border overall present:
So Far So West: an 18 meters long wall crosses and re-shapes the space. His plan issues from the comparison between my apartment plant in Rome and that one of Lausanne’s art center. Overlapped and placed in line with the compass orientation of the two architectures, the two plans generate a sort of third space, which is designed by the encounter between the private dimension and the public one.
